• Why order a great Pauillac?
The style of Pauillac wines is what many consider to be the greatest wine of Bordeaux: rich, full-bodied and tannic. They have a strange ability to combine a regal character, with a sense of rigour and elegance. They combine elegance with power coupled with complexity. Notable flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, tobacco, cigar box, spices, earth, lead pencil, cedar wood and rainforest aromas coupled with powerful wines, firm tannins. In the best vintages, the best wines can age 100 years or more! Pauillac has 1,199 hectares of vines and has 115 different producers in the region.

• What are the premiers grands crus from Pauillac?
The Premiers Crus of Pauillac each have their own characteristics: Lafite Rothschild produces the most complex in aroma and subtle flavour of the region, while - with its high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon - Mouton Rothschild can produce an exuberant, rich and fleshy wine. Château Latour, without doubt the most coherent premier cru of Bordeaux, is located in the south of Pauillac, next to St Julien. Its soil is rich in gravel with excellent drainage and the Pauillac vines of Château Latour penetrate up to five metres into the ground. It produces perhaps the oldest wines of the Médoc.
